#29. Dr. Tom Oord: God Can't

Dr. Tom Oord is back on the podcast to talk about his new book God Can’t. If you’ve ever wondered why God hasn’t prevented tragedy, are tired of cliche answers, and you don’t want to read volumes of dense theology, this is your book. Plus, Tom talks about some of the quirkier things in Christianity: healing, demons, heaven, hell, the second coming and more!

#28. Nish Weiseth: Religion and Politics

Politics and religion. The topics you aren’t supposed to talk about, but can’t ignore these days. Nish Weiseth (author, speaker, podcast host) is on to help us understand the disturbing relationship between Evangelicals and right wing politicians in the U.S. and what a faithful response could look like.

Nish, along with Amy Sullivan, is the co-host of Impolite Company, a podcast that covers religions and politics with depth and insight. Nish’s op-ed pieces have been featured in Cosmopolitan and Christianity Today, and she authored the book Speak: How Your Story Can Change the World.
